Kings Made The Right Decision

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,
The Kings were a very unhappy team. That hardly makes them unique but, in this case, they want to prove they were right and that Murray was the cause of their problems. One veteran player will insist off the record that Murray is the worst coach he has played for. Another, who is never reticent to go over the coach's head, has been complaining for much of the season about Murray's tactics. The complaints have had one common thread: Murray doesn't use his players properly. It must be said that players often make this type of evaluation, and they're not always right. It must also be said that players and coaches often assess attributes differently. But to be specific, the players felt Murray coached to keep the game close. They want to pull all the stops to win, even if the more open games occasionally caused them to lose by a large margin.
